The Northern Territory (NT) is a federal territory of Australia, occupying much of the center of the mainland continent, as well as the central northern regions. The territorial capital is Darwin.

The Northern Territory shares borders with Western Australia to the west, South Australia to the south, and Queensland to the east. To the north, the territory is bordered by the Timor Sea, the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria. Despite its large area (over 520,000 square miles, making it the third largest Australian federal division) the NT is sparsely populated. With a population of 221,100 it is the least populous division on the mainland.

The coin’s obverse depicts a colored composition of Kakadu National Park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The design includes an image of a saltwater crocodile (or "saltie") and Sturt's Desert Rose, the NT’s floral emblem.
